Seven schools from North Somerset have been recognised at national travel awards which promote sustainable and active travel.
Pupils and parents from five primary schools and two secondary schools picked up bronze from Modeshift STARS in recognition of their work during the school run.
Supported by funding from North Somerset Council, the Department for Transport and Living Streets, the schools involved were Becket, Churchill, Flax Bourton, Kingshill and Sandford primaries, along with Worle's Priory Community School and Churchill Academy and Sixth Form.
Sarah Bennett, who teaches year six pupils at Nailsea's Kingshill school, said "The children particularly enjoyed scooter safety training and going out in to the local area to learn the skills to keep them safe.
"The impact has been clear to see as many more of our children are choosing to walk, bike, and scoot to school and there is now a real buzz about being active."
